Due to administration issues the Wide Island View has not been particularly active over the last year, but we have a fresh new team who are working hard to make this the interesting informative site you all know and love. Watch this space!
The Wide Island View is the webzine written for and by members of The JET Programme in Hiroshima, Japan. Created in November 2006, the Wide Island View began as a PDF newsletter emailed to members every two months. In June 2009, the publication moved online.
In addition to news and info about events for Hiroshima JETs, the Wide Island View publishes content of interest to JETs throughout Japan, including articles about travel, Japanese culture, studying Japanese, recipes and more. All JETs and JET alumni are encouraged to contribute, as well as other members of the English speaking community throughout Japan.
The website is currently managed by editors Carlye Hodel, Liz Millership and Aleck Skeie. They can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wide Island View is run entirely by volunteers, and though it is free online to readers, there is a cost to run the website. Web hosting fees are paid through advertising revenue and donations. If you enjoy reading the Wide Island View, we urge you to show the love through a small donation – every yen helps. Thanks and Happy Reading!
